i use 10 gigs for xp pro. i run a few apps on it, diskeeper, nero, clone, power dvd, winzip, zonealarm, blah blah blah, small stuff
then on the rest of the drive i run games & multitrack audio software, generally the stuff that needs more space, and has critical info that i don't want erased if i need to reinstall the os.
i also do a 5 gig for 98se, just for a couple of old apps.
